“No Complaints!”
Reviewed 15 June 2012

Having read some of the negative reviews, was a bit concerned about what we would end up with, but were very happy with our studio unit. Ask for #203 if you want a studio, it was very roomy, had a separate kitchen and bathroom and a large balcony with great ocean views. The rest of the unit was very generous in size as well – a king-size bed with 2 chests of drawers, a love seat, a lounge chair and a dining table for 2 still left lots of room to move around. Granite countertops in kitchen and bath, new tiles, the whole unit seems to have been completely renovated within the past couple of years. The owners had left some guest books in the room, which are always fun to read. We really enjoyed reading about the owners’ frequent visits and experiences as well as those of other guests. Plus there were some great tips/reviews on area restaurants there as well. The Aston Mahana is located in Honokowai, about 15 minutes from Lahaina, and the pool area, beach access, amenities are all fine. There are 3 or 4 big stainless steel bbqs for guests to use, and a free DVD system. You can walk along the beach for several miles, and there are coral reefs right off the beach for those who enjoy snorkel/scuba. Lots of colourful fish, big sea turtles, etc. Whale sightings are very common during mating season, we were there near the end of the season and were disappointed not to see any whales. Then on our last day, we finally saw a pair breaching in the distance! We had 2 maintenance issues with our unit, and I have to give the management full props for their quick response. The A/C wasn’t working, so we notified the front desk on the first morning and there was a repairman there within the hour. We also noticed some extra guests in the dishwasher area (okay, there were some bugs) – very common in tropical climates, don’t let this deter you from the Aston. Again, we notified the front desk and we were contacted by pest control almost immediately to see when it would be convenient for them to access the unit without disrupting our vacation. Whatever they did, we never saw critters during the rest of our stay. We had also requested extra pillows and hangers when we made our reservation, and everything was provided as asked.

Because this is a condo hotel, there is always the chance you will end up with a unit that is badly in need of some TLC. We were lucky to end up in 203. I would suggest you read the Room Tips on TA and request a specific room when you make your reservation just to be safe.

Room Tip: Room 203 is a renovated spacious studio unit. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed at the Aston Mahana April 21-29, 2012. The staff was exceptionally helpful, especially Garrett and Karen. They answered every question concerning nearby grocery stores, snorkel rental places, how to get to church in Lahaina, safe beaches, etc. Also, the tour representative who gave her presentation the first morning, Lynn, I believe, was also incredibly helpful, and found us a great snorkeling tour with the Maui Ocean Center, good seats at the Ulalena show in Lahaina, and a wonderful trip to the Maui Ocean Center Aquarium plus a lot of hints on where to go on the island for walks, exploration, etc. The view from our 12th floor was stunning-watched the paddle boarders every day, and one day we were able to watch the slow journey of a sea turtle heading north. The thundering ocean did keep us awake from time to time, but that is what we came to Maui for, so didn't mind a bit! Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. There weren't many children so usually had the pool and hot tub to ourselves or with another couple. The beach in front of the hotel is too rocky and rough so I don't recommend it for children, but good beaches are just a few minutes walking distance away.
The studio was just the right size. Kitchen had a washer/dryer. We shopped at the nearby farmer's market and the Times grocery store and ate most of our meals in the room. We can hardly wait to return and would not consider any other place in Maui!!

Room Tip: Some people on lower floors complained about the wind and mist from ocean came into their rooms. I...

We walked the beach everyday and there isn't another property that is this close to the water. We stayed on the 4th floor. Honestly, my only complaint is it's so close to the water that if you sleep with the windows open the Ocean will keep you up at night. I even could feel the mist from the waves hitting me while I was on the patio. We didn't book with the hotel but another travel company called Chase N Rainbows. You can also book on VRBO. Both will give you a better deal and you'll know exactly which property you are getting. Everything from fully stocked kitchen to washer/dryer, two bathrooms, and again, amazing and best ocean front view in Maui. No joke, there isn't another hotel this close and it seems to be more affordable than any other place on that beach.

3rd time in Maui we recommend the Mahana if more than 4 or more people in your group I will suggest room 1208 and if 4 or less go with room 1005. This place rocks every room has an ocean view and the staff is great.

We stayed 9 nights and absolutely loved this place. Every unit has an oceanview. We went as a family and had 3 units, all different but wonderful. We are trying to make this an annual trip because we loved it so much

Room Tip: I don't think you could pick a bad room

Really enjoyed our stay here, you cannot get closer to the beach. Our unit was a little dated and could use a little updating but that's just being picky. We were in a 1 bedroom unit with the upgraded appliances etc. the pool is a little small if you have kids, however it was never over crowded when we were there, there's miles of beach a few feet away.Theres a grocery store across the street and several restaurants within walking distance. Would love to go back anytime. My only suggestion would be to have some beach toys etc available to use/ rent
